Daulton Varsho Scouting Report & Game Video

Position: Catcher
Height/Weight: 5’10”, 190 lbs.
Bats/Throws: L/R
Birthdate: July 2, 1996
Hometown: Chili, Wisc.
School: UW-Milwaukee
FV (20-80): 50 (Everyday Catcher)
MLB ETA: 2020

Dates Observed: May 20-24, 2018

Team/Organization: Visalia Rawhide (Arizona Diamondbacks)
League/Level: California League (High-A)
Scouting Notes: Great athlete, particularly for a catcher; quick first step out of the box, runs well up the line — had him at a 4.19 clip from the LHH box in this look. Athletic as ever with fresh legs … Didn’t see as much of him behind the plate as I would’ve hoped for a full series; DH’d a couple times with a few days off behind the plate; hope to come back for more of a look defensively to see if he’s developed. Suffered a broken hamate bone (DL stint announced in mid-June), though, which may put a hamper on that; Varsho may be an early candidate for an Arizona Fall League look in October … Offensively, he’s as well-rounded as ever with real power to his pull side and full plate coverage with a mature approach to hit the other way if that’s how he’s being pitched. Bat path has flattened a little bit, and he put the ball more consistently in the air — particularly to his pull side — in my May look here. He’s a good hitter who should succeed in the minors and move quickly because of it. We’ll see if Daulton Varsho can keep up with his work behind the plate or, if as many evaluators feel, he’ll eventually move full-time somewhere like left field. I personally liked him behind the plate last season (below) and thought he showed enough to develop there rather than making a position change, but I’d have to see more of him catching against better competition now to make a better judgment call.

Dates Observed: August 1-3, 2017

Team/Organization: Hillsboro Hops (Arizona Diamondbacks)
League/Level: Northwest League (Short-Season)
Scouting Notes: Short, impressive stroke from the left side of the plate; coverage to all fields with enough bat speed and quick enough hands to get inside balls on his inner half, drive and lift them with some encouraging power to his pull side. The best pure hitter on a Hillsboro Hops team that included Pavin Smith — the guy long thought to be the best pure hitter in this year’s MLB Draft class. Enjoying a monster summer in Hillsboro; opening eyes up here with his ability to hit, run, hit for power … Still some questions defensively, particularly with his ability to throw the ball, but he showed me in this look that he loves to throw — really loves to back pick at first base, will challenge runners and isn’t afraid to go at guys in search of an out on the bases. Quick to the dirt to block and just as quick to come up throwing; good situational awareness there. Daulton Varsho is a good enough athlete that receiving and blocking come fairly naturally to him; reps should iron him out behind the plate, but if they don’t, there’s always a shot he gets a look at first base or in a corner outfield role down the line thanks to his advanced, consistent hit tool.
